Flexible managed payroll and shared solutions for businesses, local government and education from a BACS accredited provider.

Paying people accurately, on time and in line with ever-changing legislation is a complex task. Civica can help lighten the load - leaving your time free to concentrate on core activities. Our payroll services cover not only payroll processing but BACS, employee expense and mileage claims, benefits in kind (BiK) and pensions too. 

We can help you meet your workplace pensions responsibilities by monitoring employees’ eligibility for auto-enrolment into your company pension scheme. This includes managing postponement, opt-outs and automatic re-enrolment in line with legislation. We can cater for multiple pension schemes for each employee including Occupational Final Salary, Stakeholder Schemes, Personal Schemes, Group Personal Pensions, Teachers Pension Scheme and Local Government Pension Schemes.

We can also provide a BACS disaster recovery service to ensure your business continuity in the event of an emergency. We are a BACS approved bureau which means that we receive a 3-yearly independent assessment of our business practices, standards, procedures and controls covering 5 key areas of our operation:

  • Bureau organisation and financial information
  • Physical security
  • Computer operations
  • Applications and system support
  • BACS processing and operations.

We provide flexible payroll bureau and shared solutions to a wide range of organisations across multiple sectors as well as specialist education payroll services to schools, colleges and multi-academy trusts.  

Our HMRC approved Civica Payroll software has an expenses and benefits module and as part of this we provide an outsourced P11D and P46(Car) service to employers. This can be fully outsourced, or managed on an Employer’s behalf who use Civica Payroll software. We use the latest online technologies to share data in a simple, secure and fully-auditable way, whether you are using our services standalone or with our integrated cloud HR & Payroll software.

Bureau or fully managed payroll service

Simply provide us with your data each period and we will ensure your employees are paid accurately and on time and that RTI data is sent to HMRC. If you opt for our fully managed service then we will also provide a helpline for employee queries on tax and NI.

We provide a secure self-service portal for you to enter employees, leavers, changes, period variations, sickness and also view payslips and P60s. We offer the choice of either printed or secure e-payslips and P60s.
